I had a rough day yesterday. Nothing I want to go into but it just wasn't a very good mommy day. You know those days...
Well my hubby knew how to cheer me up when he told me our neighbors had a good stash of trash on the curb a couple houses down. It was a rental so the people moved out this month.
So we crept over there last night with our flashlight.
Nothing earth shattering to makeover but some fun finds that I just gotta show you!
A few odds and ends like: sunglasses, notebook paper, 2 Kids DVDS, CD, a couple toys, door mat and tin container.
Also this ceramic pumpkin stuffed with flowers. A horrible arrangement, I know. But there is probably $15 worth of flowers here. LOL And the pumpkin will be fun to set out in the fall. It's a little Too Orange but can easily be changed with some spray paint.
My boys' favorite. A full drum set!
Yes! In the trash ladies. There is nothing wrong with this set. There was even 3 sets of drum sticks with it AND a seat!
My youngest was sleeping but he woke up with all the excitement going on downstairs. This might be a noisy distraction in our house...the boys were already talking about it this morning.
3 new packages of batting. I am nervous with bed bugs now but none of them are open. They have $5 price tags on each of them.
And another great find is this.
We're crossing our fingers it works. We plugged it in and it seems to go but I guess we won't know until we get to sewing. I said "we" because my husband knows his way around a sewing machine more than I do. LOL
We left a lot behind at that house. And now I kick myself because there were a few baby things that would of been perfect for my cousin who is due in a few months. I didn't think about it until NOW...after the garbage truck came this morning.
Now where am I going to put a drum set at??
